AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! (Insert actual screams of panic here). And how does one around these here parts know when they are snowed in? By a trial run up the hill! Which I did. And quite unsuccessfully!
I live in a canyon with a mile long drive way, with a quarter mile being a good hill. Unfortunately when one is already down in the canyon, that first quarter mile to get OUT of the canyon is a doozy! And I did try it this morning as my daughter is in town at her friends house. Ahhhhh winter formal was last night for them and in a teenage moment my daughter Hannah decided at the last minute to go home with her friend Hailee and spend the night. With no spare clothes. I'm picturing my daughter in her red evening dress formal out building a snowman this morning ... ohhhhhhh dearie me! I'm sure her friend has some spare clothes for her! This same friend got snowed in with us last year for three days. I guess it's my daughter's turn to be snowed in at her friends house now!
When one is snowed in there are different things that run through one's mind. The first and foremost is to build a fire. Which I haven't done yet. I'm blogging instead! Aren't you glad you aren't stuck with me out somewhere in the wilderness? You'd be toast for sure! Or at least you wouldn't be very toasty warm! Not if I still had computer access! And then of course things like "The last can of beans" flashes through your mind. Except I haven't got any cans of beans. And then you remember this is the 21st century, and I have a freezer full of food. BUT! Is there any CHOCOLATE? In this case? NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Insert pain-racked screams of despair here). Oh but I do have a piece of non-fiction I need to get done. And I suppose Dallan and Shona, the lead characters from Time Masters wouldn't mind a run today. So all in all, snow, and a fire, (once I build one) and writing are on the agenda, sans chocolate, but I'll live. :)
Have a good Sunday everyone!

Somehow this just came up on my email notification. I was surprised at how far off it was.

Nevertheless, I love the way you write. You have a way of describing and incerting your own brand of humor which is reminiscent of Erma Bombeck.

All in all you are a terrific person to read, be it email, blog post or your own works. I'm getting antsy for TM2. I just want to know what comes next.

Bless you sis.
